This Week In Dallas, Sounds From Gang Of Four’s Seminal Era, ADOY’s First Dallas Show, More St. Patty’s Celebrations At Truck Yard & More.

Dallas, it’s been a wild St. Patrick’s weekend celebration and we’re still recovering just like you. Just before the weekend, we all saw something on our feeds that has some of us either in a frenzy or in complete confusion.

Celebrities tend to do that.

Kim Kardashian made her relationship with Pete Davidson Instagram-official on Friday. We’ve all known this has been going on for a while now, but seeing it on the Instagram feed brings it to a whole new level.

No beer in the world will ever explain a match … like that, but whatever, who are we to judge?

The pair first got traction in October 2021 when they shared a peck in a Saturday Night Live bit. Since then, chatter has risen about the two as Kim continues to get Kanye out of her life, and they were spotted holding hands at Knott’s Scary Farm in California not too long after the SNL episode.

After a couple months of rumors and ominous posts from Kanye, Kim Kardashian made the couple’s Instagram debut on Friday with a bird’s eye view shot of Pete’s head in her lap and a selfie of them together. This post is sitting at a smooth 6.1 million likes — a little over four times the number of likes the previous post received.

Pete should be getting ready for his latest film to debut this week at SXSW anyways. If your queue of celebrity gossip videos has reached an end about this duo and you need something else to spend your time on, here are our top 20 things to do in Dallas over the next seven days.
